Contents Notes
pt. 1. Biodiesel basics -- 1. Rudolph Diesel -- 2. Vegetable oil revival -- 3. Biodiesel 101 -- 4. Biodiesel's many uses -- pt. 2. Biodiesel around the world -- 5. Europe, the global leader -- 6. Other European countries -- 7. Non-European countries -- pt. 3. Biodiesel in the United States -- 8. A brief history -- 9. The main players -- 10. Biodiesel politics -- 11. Recent developments -- pt. 4. Biodiesel in the future -- 12. Looking ahead. As the politics of energy grow bleak, visionary entrepreneurs in the biofuels industry may well become society's next great hope. Rudolf Diesel designed his engine to run almost anywhere, using almost any fuel, and renewable fuels made from vegetable and other oils (foreseen by Diesel in 1912) are finally coming into their own. In this book, Greg Pahl delves into the history of the biofuels industry. He assesses its recent successes and current shortcomings, and estimates its future.--From publisher description.
